If you want to run the Windows version of the Orbiter, we have an installer http://plutohome.com/download/installers/windows - Orbiter-2.0.0.0.exe. This will allow you to use a Windows PC or tablet as an Orbiter.

The rest of the software, such as DCE Router, the devices and Plug-ins also run on Windows with the exception of Xine and MythTV. Since there is not yet a Windows-compatible media player, Windows has been a lower priority. An install program is not yet available to setup a Windows computer as a core or media director. We just created an archive file with all the required dll's and exe's http://files-upload.com/files/454340/winbin.zip. Uncompress the archive to any directory, and run DCERouter.exe. Any DCE Device can connect to any router. Windows devices will connect to a Linux DCERouter, and vice-versa. The archive also includes Designer which is used to build the user interface for the Orbiters. This is a C# program and requires the .NET framework.

You can also download the source code and build using the included Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 project files. You will need to install MySQL, SDL and the Pthread libraries manually until we have a Windows installer to do it for you. If you want to run the LinuxMCE Admin web site, you will also need php and a compatible web server, like Apache or IIS.
